 Gougers and thickness/ width of reed
Author: Simonsky

Hi All,

I used to only make reeds from pre-gouged/shaped cane but am considering buying a gouger (second hand probably) but as I don't know much about the variables I wanted to ask you gougers out there a few questions.

1) Does a gouger only work with one width of cane or a range, e.g. 10.5-11.5 mm? That is can you experiment with widths on the same gouger?

2) Can the same gouger offer the possibility of gouging at different depths and side ratios and does this involve having interchangeable blades?

I suppose it might depend on the model- but any advice would be appreciated.
